Here’s a little bit of humor (perhaps) for today. According to myfoxny.com:

“Police: Man urinated on people near Florida campus

Posted: Mar 06, 2014 8:34 AM EST

Police are searching for a man who has been urinating on people near the University of Florida campus.

The victims told police they were standing with their backs turned to the man when they felt themselves being urinated upon.

The incidents took place on Saturday, February 22, 2014 after 3:00 a.m., Wednesday, February 26, 2014 after 12:00 p.m., and Saturday, March 1, 2014 after 3:30 a.m.

The victims all told police that when they confronted the man, he ran away.

The suspect is described as a black man, approximately 25-30 years of age, 6’ tall, medium to “chunky” build, short curly hair, dark complexion and was last seen wearing grey or dark hoodie and baggie jeans.

Police are increasing patrols, including undercover, in the area in an effort to find the suspect. If caught, he could face battery charges for urinating directly on people.”

See: http://www.myfoxny.com/Story/24902212/police-man-urinated-on-people-near-florida-campus

When I read this article, two questions came to mind:

*Are the police “profiling” if they use the detailed description to BOLO the suspect ?

and

*If caught, will the accused attempt to employ Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” laws in his defense?

One other note: Googling the headline got me pages of links which also reported this story. Every other link reported the story this way:

“Police: Man Urinated on People Near Florida Campus

GAINESVILLE, Fla. March 6, 2014 (AP)

Police are searching for a man who has been urinating on people near the University of Florida campus.

The Gainesville Sun (http://bit.ly/1faqz9G) reports the victims told police they were standing with their backs turned to the man when they felt themselves being urinated upon.

The incidents occurred Feb. 22, Feb. 26 and March 1 in various locations near the campus.

The victims all told police that when they confronted the man, he ran away.

Police are increasing patrols in the area.”

See one example at: http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/police-man-urinated-people-florida-campus-22795923

Apparently the other news outfits simply re-reported the AP version of the story – which obviously omits the detailed description of the “assailant.” I wonder which version of the story is preferable to concerned readers from the standpoint of community service and awareness in Gainesville?

Well He picked a bad time to urinate, even while in Florida. They too had a cold spell. Guy probably had 'shrinkage', so that don't leave much to describe. But since you have given us a Political angle on this one...on The Humor Scale I give it a.... 6. You usually deliver 10's hence the score.

Got anymore? We could use a laugh or two right about now in the midst of all these discussions going on about Religion, Sex, and Politics.

sebekm commented on Thursday, Mar 06, 2014 at 17:10 PM

I'm not sure I'd call "profiling" and "Stand Your Ground" a political angle, but as far as any more "humor" goes, try these:

Man, that just pisses me off. ;)

sebekm commented on Thursday, Mar 06, 2014 at 17:55 PM

I guess that validates the old maxim:

"Better to be pissed off than pissed on...."

I don't want to laugh but as I read on oh I am laughing

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Mar 07, 2014 at 14:31 PM

Some people like being pissed on, so I am told. Now there's a business opportunity.

Funny stuff Sheran!

Yep - bad news fer sure.

Here are two others:

*If you're old enough, you remember Mr. Whipple and the "Don't Squeeze The Charmin" TV commercial. Here's a different twist - I call it:

*And then we have what every Wal-Mart shopper looks forward to:

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 12:48 PM

Why can't we have a Wal-Mart like that?

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 14:33 PM

Maybe we do. Perhaps we just need to go there around midnight and see what's happening in electronics.

Personally, I think we need a Dunkin' Donuts like this one:

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 16:39 PM

Yes we do. I mean a girls got make a living or pay her tuition don't she? Did you see the DUKE coed that does classes in the day and does PORN at night to finance her education.

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 16:46 PM

No, but after spending eight years in Europe, I can understand the argument that if some things are inevitable and we all can agree that they are (like human biology), you might as well try to make the best of things and protect society as much as you can.

The world's oldest profession (no - not politics) has been around throughout human history. It ain't going away any time soon. There's never been either the will or the way to completely stamp it out. Might as well make it as safe as you can and tax the hell out of it to support social programs which contribute to a healthy society.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 16:49 PM

Same argument for Drugs Sebe. Legalize them all and tax the hell out of it.

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 16:58 PM

I see the argument, but I don't think it's as "inevitable" as hooking for dollars. But the states seem to want to try it, and perhaps - like the lottery - more good than harm will come from it. These headlines illustrate the potential problems:

*From the Californian who obviously imbibed while running around with Linda Ronstadt back when:

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2014...

*And don't forget the kids:

http://www.denverpost.com/breakingnew...

*And perhaps we shouldn't expect TOO much from taxation of the demon weed:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinion...

*And they are still trying to figure out the law:

http://reason.com/archives/2014/03/05...

*And who would believe that marijuana is RACIST?

http://www.theutcecho.com/?p=9068

(I wonder which side of THIS argument the Democrats will be on.....)

sebekm commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 17:07 PM

...and I'll answer that question:

Obviously, the Dems will say that "minorities" who can not afford to buy dope need "help." Guess what that means?

SUBSIDIES FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED DOPERS!

That's right - tax dollars used to by dope for the underprivileged who can not afford to partake of the same "legal" activity as the "angry white - and RICH - white man."

Subsidies which mean that my tax dollars get used for underprivileged dopers I don't know in support of an activity not only don't I believe in but also which I believe is actually harmful to society in many ways.

Who would have thunk it? Quoth the Yakov:

"WHAT A COUNTRY!!!"

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Mar 08, 2014 at 18:14 PM

Taxing sin, takes $$ away from da debil.

It's the ECONOMY, stupid.

sebekm commented on Sunday, Mar 09, 2014 at 14:41 PM

That's what they said. But the question is:

WILL IT EVER GET TO THE DEBT?

The sequester is the only reason we have made a dent in the federal deficit in recent years. The DEBT continues to climb - fueled by massive government spending into the bottomless pit of social programs. The current president came into office saying he was going to "fix" the country's aging infrastructure - remember those crumbling bridges, roads, etc. I saw a speech the other day where he said we need to fix the country's aging infrastructure - those crumbling bridges, roads, etc. Good sound bite but it's FIVE YEARS LATER and he still hasn't done anything other than talk.

It may be the economy, but it's also the ACTION, stupid.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Mar 09, 2014 at 15:40 PM

Dam Sebe. I was channeling Bush the Elder with its the Economy stupid; not referring to you...I was keeping it light and friendly. And here you come to piss all over it!!

See Shan: He will turn on you like a snake. A pit viper. A Krait. A Copperhead, a Moccasin, a Rattler, A sea otter, one of Tot's friends, a jilted lover, your mortgage holder, a sleeping field mouse, a group if irritable meerkats or a false positive reading of an AIDS test. He cannot be trusted.

sebekm commented on Sunday, Mar 09, 2014 at 16:10 PM

"Dam Sebe. I was channeling Bush the Elder with its the Economy stupid; not referring to you...I was keeping it light and friendly. And here you come to piss all over it!!"

You didn't say that - and you ought to expect a reader to read what you write.

And how do you know I wasn't also channeling Bush the Elder in my retort?
And then you fly off the handle and attack.

Bloggers will make up their own minds on the issues and on their fellow bloggers. As far as I am concerned, ALL are welcome here with their opinions - whatever they are and especially when they play by the site rules. You remember those rules, don't you? They are the ones on abusive comments which you frequently ignore and get a pass on from the rest of us.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Mar 10, 2014 at 08:42 AM

Having a bad afternoon are we Sebe? A little anger there, no?

I got the welcome mat out to other bloggers too Sebe. We seem to all have our various styles of writing.

I guess a geezer like Tot gets his pass too for calling Liberals accessories to murder!

And IF I, JimmyMack am in fact getting "a pass" on my "abusive words, I assure that it is not coming from you or the "rest of us."

The webmeister makes the calls here. Being called an accessory to Murder far exceeds any "abusive" words (prior to my first banishment) that I may or may not have used here.

I have been engaging in light hearted banter here. It was you who pissed on the blog and took it in a different direction.

Let's just call it a misunderstanding, kiss and make up! What ya say?

sebekm commented on Monday, Mar 10, 2014 at 15:51 PM

Okay - fine by me - but if you check the above you'll see that you dropped YOUR load FIRST. I was just responding in kind and used your terminology. So then you get pissed off.

Paraphrasing Hulka to Soyer:

Lighten up, Jimmy.

(Me, too.)
